The Medieval and Renaissance Studies curriculum opens to students the diverse cultures of Europe, Western Asia, and Northern Africa that thrived within the period from the third century through the sixteenth. It incorporates offerings from the departments of Art, English, History, Modern Languages and Classics, and Political Sciences, as well as the Honors College, to explore issues of social structure, philosophy, religion, politics, language, poetry, prose, material culture, and visual expression from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Students who elect this curriculum usually begin their exploration of the period through introductory courses, such as ARH 155, ARH 156, HON 112, HON 211, and HTY 105, only one of which counts towards the total credits of the curriculum, and continue on with more focused studies at higher course levels. Students are encouraged to take courses from all of its disciplines.
